Herbal remedy for hairfall
WE are constantly bombarded by images of celebrities with dazzling hair and marvellous skin. However, for many of them, these attributes are achieved with delicate care and, in some cases, various progressive therapy.
Neeta’s Herbal strives to achieve the same using traditional herb- based products to optimise the health of your hair and skin. In its 25- year history, a vast array of hair and skin conditions have been identified and successfully remedied using natural, nonsynthetic products.
This unique method of hair care combines modern technology with Ayurvedic medicine. In her quest to attain solutions for ever- present hair problems, Neeta Herbal founder, Neeta Gosalia has analysed and tested every viable treatment technique.
To solve hair disorders, it is important to first understand the various aspects of each. Among the commonly known conditions, alopecia is the most notorious and presents in a plethora of forms.
In androgenic alopecia, hair fall is caused by miniaturisation of hair follicles due to the overproduction of hormones primarily testosterone and its active metabolite dihydrotestosterone.
Androgenic alopecia presents in distinct patterns in males and females – in males, hair recedes from the front of the scalp while in females, hair fall is primarily over the crown.
Another common form of alopecia is alopecia areata. This is considered an autoimmune disease in which multiple structures of the hair follicle are mistakenly antagonised by our own immune system during its growth phase, resulting in improper hair development.
Approximately 20% of areata sufferers have a family history while in others the disorder may be triggered by a major life event. The effects are physically represented as patches on non- specific areas of the scalp.
Despite being slightly less common, another hair ailment worthy of mention is telogen effluvium.
The telogen phase is a natural phase of the hair growth cycle when a small number of hair shafts are shed from their follicle.
However, during telogen effluvium, an increased proportion of hair follicles are forced into this phase, inducing excessive shedding of hair.
However, not all hair fall problems can be attributed to genetic defects or complicated diseases.
Very frequently our hair is in a poor state due to unhealthy habits such as excessive smoking and consumption of alcohol, an imbalanced diet, irregular sleeping habits and such that contribute to the degradation of the hair follicle and its associated structures. For most hair problems, modern medicine suggests a cocktail of drugs such as minoxidil, finasteride and a variety of corticosteroids.
However, in most cases the side effects are not mentioned. This is why Neeta’s Herbal prefers using naturally occurring, non- synthetic ingredients to nurture and strengthen your hair.
It is possible to reverse the problems mentioned using simple herbal countermeasures that are safe and free of debilitating side effects.
Apart from hair care, Neeta’s Herbal also administers treatment for various skin problems. Hair extensions, and customised wigs are also available at its centres.

Mix- and- match sock laundry
Put out a pile of clean socks and have the kids play “Snap” by picking matching socks. For older kids, have them fold T- shirts and pile everything in the cupboard or drawer according to colour.
Have an achievement chart
Children love to see their own progress as much as we do and there’s nothing that signals achievement than a chart with gold and silver stars. Kids get points for tidying, setting the table, washing their own cup and dusting. If you’re so inclined, set a rule that for every 10 points gained, the child is allowed a treat.
Go toy- sized minded
Small fingers can’t handle grown- up things easily, so make matters simple by buying a little duster, a toy broom and so on. Then play pretend games where kids get to have super powers and must deal with naughty volcanoes that have erupted toys over the bedroom floor. Or keep it real and be butlers and hotel workers.
